Harvey Tomlinson

Narrows Rd Belleplain
Cape May County, NJ

Only walked a small part. When I started to see numbers I went back to the car and with pen and notepad and did an old fashion count. Good numbers but what was the most interesting was 25%+ of the Red-banded, Azures, and Duskywings were tiny runts. The azure pictured below was half the size of a dime. Some of the Duskwings were half the size of the others .

  • Spicebush Swallowtail 1
  • Red-banded Hairstreak 67
  • Brown Elfin 2
  • Henry's Elfin 3
  • Eastern Pine Elfin 2
  • Spring Azure 57
  • Lady sp. 1
  • Question Mark 1
  • Juvenal's Duskywing 32
  • Horace's Duskywing 1
